Earth Sciences with a Specialization in Planetary Geology, B.S.

This program is offered by the Geological Sciences Department

Program Description

The Planetary Geology Specialization is designed for students planning a career as a professional geologist with government agencies (e.g. NASA) or the remote sensing industry. In addition, we have two Earth Science specializations for students who want the Earth Science background but do not intend on being professional Geologists. These 36 credit degree programs have calculus as an option, and provide the opportunity to integrate biology and chemistry courses into a program suited to an individual career path. These specializations also require 22-24 credits of coursework in Physics, Chemistry, and Math for a total of 58-60 credits.
